Svaneborg Kardyb (DK)

This Danish duo seem to have the best of both worlds: a compelling live presence and carefully construted albums. They released their debut album, Knob, in March 2019. The album became the Album of the Week on the Danish national radio, and secured the duo two awards at the Danish Music Awards gala. Their live energy brought them a victory in the national jazz competition JazzKonkurrencen 2019.

The music, composed by both, pianist Nikolaj Svaneborg and drummer Jonas Kardyb, is minimalistic and atmospheric. According to the duo, it was created “over the blackest of coffee in the earliest of mornings”.

This performance is a part of the NORDIC JAZZ COMETS project.

Kadi Vija Key Project (FI)

Kadi Vija Key Project is a fresh and innovative jazz group built around the outstanding Finnish/Estonian jazz singer Kadi Vija. The ensemble strives for the sound that is soft but substantial, quiet but captivating, sound that stays on the listener’s mind but leaves it hungry for more.

Kadi Vija’s uncommon singing style is influenced by instrumental improvised music, flowing thoughts and abstractness. Vija's music draws from modernism, jazz and film scores. This quartet, with a refreshing instrumentation of vocals, bass clarinet, guitar and drums, released their debut album Roaming In The Contemporary Society To Make Peace With It in May 2020.

This performance is a part of the NORDIC JAZZ COMETS project.
